Stefan Hausl Winning Line at the Swatch Big Mountain Fieberbrunn 2011 by Nissan

Austrians dominated the fifth and last event of the Freeride World Tour prior to the big season finale in Verbier, Switzerland next weekend. Austrian rider Stefan Hausl was the winner in the demanding 600-meter Wildseeloder face at the Swatch Big Mountain Fieberbrunn 2011 by Nissan, charging hard, and took the lead early with a crowd-pleasing line that started with a cleanly landed 15-meter air, and followed with a fast and fluid line from top to bottom ending with a big, old-school "Spread Eagle" trick at the bottom. "It was a perfect day. The conditions were very difficult, like spring conditions but we gambled a little bit and in the end most of the Austrians made the right decisions for this venue. This is my first FWT victory and after I placed third in Sochi I’m completely stoked. This face is perfectly tailored for my riding style: at the beginning it’s very steep and difficult with big rocks, then there’s a section where I could show some speed, then, in the last section, I tried to two or three fun things", said Hausl.
